The Individual Learning Plan, or ILP, is a web-enabled tool that allows students in grades 6-12 to explore careers related to their interests and abilities as well as plan and prepare for their future careers. Additionally, the ILP is a component of the Program Review for Practical Living and Career Studies, part of the new assessment system in Kentucky.
This power point presentation provides information about the ILP as it relates to minimum high school graduation requirements mandated by Kentucky law. Additionally, the resource explores how the ILP can positively impact school culture.
College and career readiness is the driving force behind Kentucky 2009 Senate Bill 1 which mandated major changes in Kentucky curriculum standards, testing, teacher preparation, and professional development. A key strategy in preparing students for future success is a comprehensive advising program, and includes the full implementation of the Individual Learning Plan (ILP).
The ILP is an internet-based tool to help students prepare for their futures using a systemic and guided format. Students have access to the ILP tool from 6th through 12th grade and beyond. Schools and districts are creating plans and processes to incorporate the ILP into the structure of the school in order to help students complete and fully maximize their ILPs. The ILP is housed on the Kentucky Department of Education web server and is always available to transferring or migratory students.
This power point presentation provides information about the ILP as it relates to minimum high school graduation requirements mandated by Kentucky law. For example, beginning with the class of 2013, 6th grade students are required to begin using ILPs focusing on career exploration and related secondary education. By the 8th grade, students begin setting personal and academic goals for high school and beyond to help them identify courses and make other education goals.
Additionally, the resource explores how the ILP can positively impact school culture. Students make connections between their class work and the careers they want to pursue which motivates them to achieve at higher levels, for example. Teachers and administrators have access to individual student data through the ILP resulting in student-centered advising rather than using a “canned” program.

Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
